Meet the Stela 9 Girl: Kamille


Kamille, our Production Assistant and yoga-teaching mama-to-be, is originally from Oklahoma but has been living in Guatemala for years now. Her and her husband, Chris, (who met in the Peace Corps) just make the most adorable duo, and when they’re not doing some type of humanitarian work in Guatemala, they are helping to take care of the 10 puppies their dog Tomas shares with the next-door neighbor, and friend’s, pup.  Who we happened to watch, and help deliver, while enjoying a casual BBQ at their home. Crazy, I know.

We’re so excited for Kamille to share with all of you her experiences with yoga and teaching,  artist spotlights on Guatemala, as well as some great, and easy, recipes with ingredients you can cultivate from your home garden. I have to say, her hidden talent was unexpected but quite impressive, and her most embarrassing moment is definitely one most of us can relate to. Unfortunately. Read below.
